Not a difference in sound with all them to me. They all sounded the same to me. Sounded like a crossbow. Get outdoors in real hunt conditions that includes wind, trees, acorns dropping, squirrels and running streams...... Nada!On video all of those bows sounded equally loud. The only bow that was noticeably quieter was the Scorpyd.
I shot several of the bows tested in this video. Indoors, there was a noticeable difference in the loudness of the bows.
I guess the decibel meter picks up sounds that the human ear doesn't hear, or vise versa.
Well, since I kicked off each model intro with some bow porn, had to get some music in there to set the tone!Your videos are always well done. I personally would have preferred quiet narration to the music track on the noise video, but I understand the need to be entertaining too. I think it’s always tough to judge sound by a recording. Most crossbows seem quieter on video than actually shooting them, but they also seem much quieter when someone else shoots and you are close by.
Have you ever done an indoor decibel comparison to outdoors with the same crossbow? Curious to see if indoor would be louder as sound is trapped in the building.Well, since I kicked off each model intro with some bow porn, had to get some music in there to set the tone!
That buck had one thing on his mind, as I powered up the camera, hey, who reaches for a camera before their bow when they see a target buck is coming and took you by surprise??? lol... taking a chance with all of that extra movement??? lol... so I powered up the camera and you can see the doe he is trailing is with a fawn. That hunt was big time rut and the leaves were crunchy, helping me out! Now when he was getting to a trot I had to MEH louder to get him to stop, I was still getting the camera and bow squared away... now with the expert MEH that I spend hours working on... drives my wife nuts, she is like "I had to go thru this crap during turkey season!"... lol... and really, all of the noise from the leaves with the 3 deer walking, you can say it is giving me cover, but we all know and have experienced, bucks don't always care during the rut, they will catch you moving or even as you are walking to the stand, they could really care less, especially if they are on the trail of a hot doe.That buck … tolerated a lot of noise ...lol Last week I had a big doe with male & female fawns come in uncomfortable as a harlot in church. In a 15 minute showdown waiting for the doe to afford a shot I picked up my foot. It's incomprehensible how she heard it. The three bolted off. I PICKED IT UP!!! Didn't drag it, or have noisy clothes on or have anything fall off the bottom or even put it back down yet. I heard absolutely nothing, no other part of me moved, and I was hidden behind a solid, no see through stand skirt. Astonishing hearing. Although it was a very rare dead calm evening. Wind in winter is a pain, but it does let you get away with a lot more.
Eventually they circled back from the other side and I killed her but it made me chuckle when I compared her to all you got away with before killing the buck in the video.
Big difference though when you shoot the Deathstalker 380, and then shoot the R26, the numbers seem close but you really hear the difference and the carbon DS just sucks it up! Big difference in tone also. Finding the right dampeners and the right spots to put them will tame that R26 and bring those numbers down with the tone.Wow! I'm surprised. I thought there would be a bit more differences. I thought my Sniper was pretty quiet but I guess theyre all about the same. Thanks for sharing.
What dampness and location are you running on your DS380 ?Big difference though when you shoot the Deathstalker 380, and then shoot the R26, the numbers seem close but you really hear the difference and the carbon DS just sucks it up!
